Simon is best known as lead guitarist and founding member of the legendary goth/alternative band The Mission (The Mission UK in the U.S. due to legal stuff). His dreamy signature sounds can be heard on their first iconic four albums; God’s Own Medicine, Children, Carved in Sand, and Grains of Sand. Hinkler would move on from this era in pursuit of various other projects later to rejoin The Mission for their 25th anniversary followed by a celebrated run of world tours, two new albums, and a 30th anniversary. Most recently he would also guest on Alice Cooper’s five UK arena shows.
